Three years after the release of his raw 1995 debut LP, The Mind of Mystikal, sharp-tongued, hi-energy New Orleans rapper Mystikal sent shockwaves through the hip hop community when he joined forces with Master P's No Limit Records and issued the platinum selling Unpredictable (1997). "Basically, with the first record, I was just trying to get my foot in the door," says Mystikal. "I was a freshman and I wanted to prove that I had something...With 'Unpredictable' I was finally a sophomore. I went from local to national with the first album; with this one, I went from national to super-national." Peaking at #3 on the Billboard 200 and #1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, Unpredictable yielded the hit single "Ain't No Limit."
